twist program is due to expire at the end of the year. meanwhile san francisco fed president john williams says qe-3 will likely extend into the second half of next year. he says he expects unemployment to remain high for some time. he's optimistic the fiscal cliff will be resolved, but says if it isn't, there is little the fed can do to solve then the blow to the economy. just want to pick up here with michael. we've seen pretty dovish comments from john williams. and we've seen the evans rule talking about 3% inflation target. so even though everyone is talking about the better growth outlook, should we expect more stimulus from the fed? >> yes, i think you should. since the september meeting, it's been our expectation that they would convert these purchases of treasuries in to an open-ended purchase program. so that would mean starting next year, the fed is add to go the balance sheet at a rate of about 85 billion a month and we would agree we think the fed will buy throughout 2013 and purchases would amount to about $850 billion or so over the course of the year. >> if we were

points. >> yes, i ran fast, mandy. earlier today, john boehner, the speaker of the house, spoke. the markets spiked. as you hear this sound bite, we're going to show you the dow intraday, what it did, and where you see the spike. it's a spike of more than 100 points. that's when speaker boehner spoke. listen to this. >> i believe that we can do this and avert the fiscal cliff that's right in front of us today. >> is this really what led to today's midday turn around, or was it something else? let's talk about that. quincy crosby joins us. mark spellman and kevin carone. quincy, is it that simple? they came out, they used the word constructive, framework, corner stone, all those positive words, and the market took off. >> absolutely. i was watching the body language when they finished up. they walked together. they didn't separate. the market kept making gains. it was that immediate. >> mark, do you agree? >> yeah, i think it was important. we've been looking for good news. the fact that everyone's heels aren't dug in quite as badly, it's good news and what otherwise has been a b
agree with you. and that's exactly what speaker john boehner wants to do. that is precisely what he wants to do. essentially have tax reform and have entitlement reform and have it laid out so it it all gets done next year. this year is the down payment. >> that's right. >> now, don, is it too early, though, to make a bet on any of this? that's really what i'm asking. between now and year end, when the bush tax cuts expire at year end, what's a stock market investor to do? you're going to go up, you're going to go down. you saw today you had a is 00-point swing. but that's no way to be invested. what is your advice on how investors play this fiscal debate? >> i understand the sentiment that the wise thing to do is to take a long-term perspective. but every once in a while we experienced this in the summer of 2008. we're experiencing it again now. every once in a while a short-term event happens that is so consequential you really need to take it into account. larry, one thing we know for sure, no matter where we end up on december 31st we're going to go to the brink to get there, an
. suddenly you have paul ryan back in the mix. this is like having john back in the mix. i don't know if you remember him. there are still a lot of people, a lot of people in the republican party who are saying this $250,000 and more, i will go to my grave before i raise taxes for the wealthy and i'm not hearing any of these guys saying i used to believe in not raising taxes for the wealthy and now i believe it. >> david has been a critic. problems are going to come along. in light of that, what's today all about? what are these futures all about? >> we live in a period of hope where you come in and the last guy you spoke is positive. the next guy -- senator mcconnell, i think what he says is futures you should be up, market should be down. we're not going anywhere. go short the market. that's not exactly what mcconnell would be saying but that's how i would read his comments. favors lower stock prices for all. that's a problem. >> it was interesting that he addresses december selling and notion that higher capital gains taxes, higher dividend taxes are going to increase selling. jpmorgan is
. michelle and john carney my victims today. investment falling off a cliff. u.s. companies cutting investments. f fastest pace since the recession and executives blaming it on the fiscal cliff. michelle, how big a problem is this and does it possibly preface a recession next year? >> it is a huge problem. investment is what drives future growth. if you cut investment, not surprised, steve leisman's been talking about it for a long time because of the fiscal cliff, obviously it leads to lower growth than would you have otherwise than if you had invested. i think it is a very bad sign. >> it is a very bad sign. it means that businesses think that we are going to have slower growth. this is almost a self-fulfilling prophecy. they spend less which means people have less income which means that they have less to spend. it is a recipe for a slowdown. part of the reason they're doing it is because fiscal cliff or no fiscal cliff, taxes are going up next year. >> even since you didn't ask, i say yes also, it is a big problem. >>> let's move on to the twinkie. our yahoo! finance question of
'll play their hand i think to their full advantage. >> what kind of hand does john boehner have? where sg it leave him and his ability to control the tea party wing? >> it actually puts skron boehner in a good position because during the debt ceiling talks last year, he had a lot of push back from the very far right of his party in the house. the tea party caucus, for example. this time around we won't see the same dynamic at all because the tea party caucus and far right have lost a lot of political capital in light of the election. so what we've already seen is speaker boehner talking to republicans in the house, putting his foot down early and saying we're not going to have that same push back we saw. instead, i'm going to tell you what we're going to do and what this deal is going to look like and you'll fall into line. >> he got criticism because he negotiated a deal and then went back and tried to sell to the party. does he naed to do he need to d way around, get a set position and then go into discussions? >> i think that is the thinking this time around. and he has certainly recog
